1840s Antique Signature Quilt Bucks Co. PA -X Marks the Spot Part 1

This X block or "Old Italian Block" signature quilt is a wonderful combination of Turkey Red prints and light blues (some double/Lancaster blues). It is from Bucks Co. Pennsylvania and the main family name is VanZant or VanSant.

Most of the names were applied via signature stamps. Here's an eagle stamp.

And more of the beautiful Turkey Reds. That paisley print is lovely and so is the blue and red stripe.

And even more of the reds and blue and signatures.  The top left name is D.W.B. Goodno stenciled inside a leaf shape.

Stay tuned to learn about the mystery hidden inside this quilt for more than a century ...
